Becauwe you asked, I will say leave it just the way it is and be proud of it. I'd be proud to own it if it was mine. Welcome to the forums from central Missouri.

Here are links to a couple of my threads you might find helpful:

Notice especially the deliberately "uncleaned" or restored Confederate saber and the reasons given for leaving it alone. While that's not so necessary on many Union examples, the tendency and temptation to overclean even them can also devalue them, especially to purists.
